Women's Executive Leadership Initiative

The Women’s Executive Leadership Initiative (WELead) is a program of the Women's Leadership Fund. At the core of WELead are small groups, or cohorts, that serve as a peer advisory board who listen and advise on a member’s needs and experiences. Cohorts meet in Little Falls and Brainerd and are open to women leaders, entrepreneurs and consultants in the surrounding areas.

Through small group meetings, events and networking opportunities, WELead breaks down community silos and facilitates the learning and development of these leaders.
